My daughter was a Hannah Montana fan when she was younger. For about three years she watched her show and wore her tee shirts. When the final season of Hannah Montana was airing, my daughter had already tired of Miss Cyrus. I don’t allow my children unlimited access to TV and internet. My daughter caught wind of the awards show, although she never saw the performance. She heard about it at school and the talk buzzing around the net about it and the music video. This didn’t lead to any great conversations with my child about tv personalities, Hollywood, or anything like that. My daughter is already aware that TV personalities are just that, made up personalities. We had that conversation long ago.
A lot of web sites are suggesting that bad press is better than no press. Okay, that might be true in Cyrus’ case. However I have a different opinion. My thoughts towards some of her actions are that Disney still holds ties to her. If Disney is still collecting money off of Miley Cyrus, what better way to make that cash flow end than by behaving in such an undesirable way? Seriously, if Disney is still making money off her and if she wanted it to stop… well, it would make sense to act inappropriately… Anyone see where I’m going with this? It’s just a thought.
I wasn’t/am not a fan. I do like the new song though, but pop music has never been my thing. Each to their own. Anywho, some of the talk I’ve heard about her is absolutely appalling. This girl literally had to Trademark her own name so that Disney didn’t steal it and cash in on it. That’s an odd thought… imagine if Disney tried to steal your identity. I’d be pretty pissed if I had to go to that extent to protect myself against a corporation like Disney. I don’t think anyone, regardless of political stance would argue that Disney is the nice one in this case. I don’t think Cyrus is stupid. I think she is a pretty intelligent girl. She did write the majority of her own music. She’s no Lord Byron, but the songs she wrote sold well.
It just seems to me that she is desperately trying to get away from Disney. She is now being compared to Brittney Spears… Seriously? No, seriously, are you
fucking kidding me? Spears had a breakdown. I just don’t see the correlation between the behavior. Maybe if Cyrus hooks up with a loser like… no I’m not even going to go down the road of that scenario. How are Miley Cyrus’ siblings doing? Does she have a 15yr sister knocked up yet? Um, nope. How many babies are being born in that family out of wedlock? M’kay then. Not that I give a shit hoot about any of that, its just that most of the people I see thrashing out such harsh judgments towards her are in those scenarios. And much more likely to have far worse destructive behaviors in their personal lives. Maybe that’s why it makes it easy for them to pass judgment from their high transparent horses.
Unlike other young girls her age she isn’t getting arrested for drugs, alcohol, drunk driving, etc. She’s not spitting in people’s faces or things equally as disgusting the way other childhood stars have. She didn’t have a teenage pregnancy either. There are far worse things she could be getting publicity for.
For the people suggesting that she just end her career and do porn already, or off herself already, you’re a repugnant bunch of sick fucks. That’s someone’s kid. That’s the least humanitarian thing I can think a person could say. Then again, hater’s gonna hate, you can’t help what’s in your heart… or can you?
Someone else wrote the following, I’d give him credit, but I don’t know who wrote it.
“I watched the video and read the lyrics again afterwards. To me it seems fairly obvious that the song is about the fine line between passion and destruction, and it seemed fairly artistically viable that the video should deal with emotional, physical and sexual destruction. Sure, there are sexual overtones but it’s also surely about sexual attraction to something/someone that we know to be destructive. She isn’t, after all, licking an enormous dildo – she’s licking an enormous sledgehammer – a sexual attraction to a destructive force; which is what the song is all about, no?”
Egads! Someone looked at it from an artistic point of view. *gasps* Now we can’t have that. We need to pull out our pitch forks and torches. Oh wait, 1832 sent a telegram requesting the pitch forks and torches be returned… Darnit, Thanks Paul Schilling. Now what ever shall we do?
Now, having said all that, if you don’t like it, don’t watch it. If you’re concerned about your children watching it, emulating that sort of behavior, then be a parent to your child and don’t allow them to watch it. Take some personal responsibility for your offspring. Child stars grow up. There are trashier things out there. There are trashier people out there. (I know a few). If you don’t want it, don’t be part of it. It’s pretty simple. There’s no need to be such
a cunt so nasty and tell a 20yr old girl to commit suicide just because you don’t like what she’s doing.
I hope everyone has a beautiful week!
